Both the above will and Codicil still remain on file in the Probate Office at Hartford, Conn. The will was made two days before the death of Capt. Joseph King. The child expected to be born, and provided for in the Codicil, was born on May 14, 1756, a little more than two months after Capt. Joseph's death and was christened by its mother Ichabod. ("The Glory has departed," 1 Samuel, ch 4, v. 21.)
